Trump on Palestinian Authority: US Gets 'No Respect'

Party members vote during the Likud Central Committee meeting

The US President tweeted the warning in an anti-foreign aid tirade on Monday night, writing: 'It's not only Pakistan that we pay billions of dollars to for nothing, but also many other countries, and others.

In a Facebook post on Monday Mr Zomlot, the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO) envoy, said he would be returning to the USA after spending time "with loved ones". Trump himself said that was evidenced by the Palestinian regime's latest refusal to even come to the negotiating table. He went on to suggest the United States shouldn't make any future payments due to their refusal to accept his peace process.

However, it is also a disputed territory, contested by both Israel and Palestine, which sees it as a capital of its future state. Palestinians want the Capital of an independent Palestinian state to be East Jerusalem, which Israel captured in the 1967 war and annexed.

A resounding majority of United Nations member states also defied threats by Trump to declare the USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital "null and void".

"We've ensured the unity of Jerusalem", Education Minister Naftali Bennett, who heads Jewish Home, said after the vote.

The legislative move came as Trump threatened to take away hundreds of millions of dollars of aid payments to the Palestinians, on the grounds that they "are no longer willing to talk peace".

In early December, Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and initiated a process to relocate the US Embassy in Tel Aviv to the holy city, breaking with decades of American policy.

The move comes less than one month after U.S. President Donald Trump announced his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, drawing widespread condemnation from across the Arab and Muslim world. "We're going to make sure that they come to the table". The president accused Pakistani leaders of giving "safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help". As of now, they're not coming to the table but they asked for aid. Additionally, Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made it clear that humanitarian funding for millions of Palestinian refugees would not be protected.

"We are trying to promote the peace process, but if that will not happen, the president will not continue to fund it", she said.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has since said that he is not willing to return to talks as long as the United States is the sole mediator.
